Closing date:New this week

Marine AcademyPlymouth

Date posted:
Start date: September 2020
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: MPS/UPS & TLR1b
Contract term: Permanent

We are looking for an excellent Head Of Maths, TLR 1b, to join our team in September 2020 and help us transform the lives of children. This is an opportunity to join the middle-leadership of a school where the ambition is a simple one: to become the highest performing school in the UK within 5 years. We serve the best children in the country and they deserve and will receive, a world class education. 

This is very much the start of a journey at Marine Academy, and this will not be a school that will appeal to everyone. Please only apply if you passionately believe:

Background or home-life is not an excuse for failure or poor behaviour.

Every student should have the option to attend University when they leave. 

Discipline, hard work, consistency and routines underpin student wellbeing and happiness. 

That group work, learning checklists  and ‘active learning’ are overrated.

That academic rigour, challenge and knowledge acquisition are vital to success. 

That school leaders remove barriers for colleagues so that they can grow and excel. 

That leadership, resilience and aspiration are valuable characteristics to grow in children.   

If you believe all of these things, are professionally ambitious and driven to transform the lives of the children of our community and City then please apply for the position of Head Of Maths, TLR 1b.  You will need to be a subject specialist and have a proven track record of leading excellent outcomes in this area. It is a new team and an exciting time to help lead a Maths department that is ready to achieve great things. This is an excellent pathway to senior leadership and NPQSL as well as the Ted Wragg Leadership Development Programme will be available for successful applicants. 

In our opinion, Devon is a wonderful place to work, the coastline, countryside and clean air offer an amazing lifestyle for professionals and their families unlike anywhere else in the UK.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust - a values driven, rapidly growing Trust with a relentless focus on transforming lives through learning by delivering outstanding outcomes for every student, regardless of background.

With a reputation for highly successful school improvement in very challenging circumstances, we are passionate about driving up standards and raising the aspirations of all our students.

Marine Academy Plymouth are committed to safeguarding children in its care; any successful appointment is subject to a satisfactory DBS check.

Further conversation with the Principal, Leigh Withers or CEO of TWMAT, Moira Marder can be arranged. 

To apply and for further information on each of our positions please go to http://marineacademy.org.uk/secondary/staff-vacancies.

Relocation package offered for the right candidate, travel expenses paid for those journeying out of county. 

Please apply by 11.59pm on the 19th April.  We will hold all applications and interview as soon as possible.
